What We’re Making! Linen Ribbon Pillow

The new Amy Butler Ribbons arrived and my mind went wild with ideas for a pillow. The Essex Linen Gray and an 18″ pillow were already in my stash.

1 yard Robert Kaufman Essex Linen
Cut 1 –  19 1/2″x 19 1/2″
Cut 2 – 19 1/2″ x 13″ for back.
1 yard Amy Butler Brocade Gray 2″wide ribbon
2 yards Amy Butler Sari Petal Gray ribbon
18″ pillow form

Stitch the ribbon onto the front in a pleasing manner. Hem the 2 back pieces along one long edge. Stitch ribbon onto one hemmed edge of the backing. Kathy’s free pattern for the Gather Up Pillow is the perfect guide for layering and stitching up the pillow.


Tomorrow in What goes with what?, find out which Robert Kaufman Essex Linen coordinates with Amy Butler Ribbon?

Snuggle in and get cozy!

    That is a beautiful pillow and like the idea of using ribbon to decorate them with.

    I was just thinking that my sofa needs new pillows and then I saw this. I just ordered fabric and ribbon for a new set of pillows.
